In the Content Reporting Guide we're encouraged to report "Pointless Posts" 

 

To my mind there are loads and loads of pointless posts in GD!

 

Who decides what is pointless or not?

The guide also states

 

"you should not report posts in the Social: General Discussion board for being pointless, that's the point of this board."

Hi @extreme_one

I would think that is nothing to do with the topic and something that is repeated throughout the thread several of times. I would have thought to say thanks were pointless but it does have a purpose in addition to giving kudo as it allows a person to add additional praise to the person that put the thread up.

This my pennyworth tho.

 

I am sure not us members will decide this, it will be the educators that do this. The report will be a consideration tho as the forum is self-moderated but the final decision is up to the educators as is any other report. 

 

I have always thought this to be the process through different thread observations.

 Fascinating that GD is classed as being specifically for Pointless Posts

@extreme_one @nominate

 

I've had posts removed from GD for being pointless Smiley Mad

 

and they even had replies Smiley Frustrated

 

guess certain gg educators are still making up their own rules?

Oh dear! That means the overwhelming majority of my giffgaff contributions are pointless.

 

I'm not quite sure how I should feel about this?
